Natural Gas and Electricity News

ELECTRICITY
Month by month all of you who had NOPEC’s 12 cent variable rate and their regular variable rate are being moved to the Illuminating Company for their “PRICE TO COMPARE” which is on the upper left side of your bill. Smile, because NOPEC has voluntarily caused you to get a 50%+ rate discount!!!! The rate now is 5.8 cents per kWh, going down to 5.46 cents!!!!
This is automatic and YOU DON’T NEED TO DO ANYTHING. YOU DON’T NEED TO CALL ME ABOUT THE LETTER YOU HAVE RECEIVED! JUST LET IT HAPPEN. You can’t find a better deal than this!
By the way, if you want “renewable/green electricity” NOPEC has a fixed rate of 9.32 cents per kWh. But remember, having “green” doesn’t mean you’re getting 100% “clean” electricity coming into your house. Can’t be done. And ignore those mailers trying to sell you on that. Big Time rip off!
NATURAL GAS
At this point it is advised that everyone should have NOPEC’s fixed rate of $6.36 per mcf, UNLESS YOU HAVE A FIXED RATE LOWER THAN THAT!!! If your gas rate is higher call the friendly operators at NOPEC at 855-667-3201 and ask for the fixed rate of $6.36 per mcf. The beauty of NOPEC is that you can switch as often as you like with no Early Termination Fee.* Plus, the operators are the nicest and best in the business. If you’re not with NOPEC and your rate is over $6.36 “you’re paying too much!” Call the company you’re with and tell them you want to cancel, IF you don’t have an early termination fee. BE SURE TO ASK! If you do, don’t cancel until your contract is up. One more thing, DO NOT go through the rest of the winter with a variable gas rate.
Also, if you want to switch to NOPEC from another company you no longer have to wait. Just tell the NOPEC operator that you live in Brecksville which is an “opt in city.”
*Alert! At this writing natural gas futures rates have been defying the laws of gravity (they’re going down!) There is a possibility that NOPEC will lower the $6.36 rate. Watch my posts for news if that happens. Not a guarantee by any means but if the rate does go down you may call NOPEC at 855-667-3201 and get the lower rate. Stay warm.
